Publix Super Markets Atlanta Division and Customers Raise Over $539,900 Through Food For All Holiday Point-of-Purchase Program

Publix Super Markets Atlanta Division and their customers came together to raise over $539,900 through their 2010 Food For All holiday season campaign. Customers contributed to the fundraiser by selecting $1, $3 or $5 donation coupons at the checkout stand while paying for their groceries. Cashiers scanned the coupons, and the donation amounts were added to the final grocery bill. The annual Food For All campaign appeared in all Publix Atlanta stores from November 14 through December 24, 2010.

More than 35 southeastern non-profit organizations received grants from Publix Atlanta Division’s Food For All program including; Atlanta Community Food Bank, East Alabama Food Bank, HOSEA Feed the Hungry & Homeless, The Community Food Bank of Central Alabama, Harvest Hope, Loaves ‘n’ Fishes, Low Country Food Bank, Montgomery Area Food Bank, The Salvation Army and The Valley Rescue Mission, Inc., to name a few.
